The LeStoff ethic: Eco-responsible production
We use 100% natural premium quality organic combed cotton certified by the GOTS label and grown close to our place of production.
As you certainly know, textile production is one of the most polluting in the world. The use of endocrine disruptors and pesticides, water pollution, long transport of parts before delivery to points of sale... To limit gas emissions, we have selected top quality cotton grown in the Çukurova valley in southern Turkey, not far from our manufacturing facilities. Çukurova, its fertile land and hot and humid climate make it ideal for cotton growing. And although the production of this plant requires a lot of water, its ecological impact is limited by the many natural water sources in the region. The cotton is harvested by hand in order to obtain undamaged fibres. These particularly long fibres make the fabric stronger, softer and more absorbent. Their fineness also means that they dry more quickly, reducing the risk of bacteria and germs developing due to moisture. All our towels are pre-washed before being sold in order to guarantee the exceptional softness of the cotton. Did you know that the 80 billion garments manufactured worldwide every year are full of chemicals? In order to guarantee you a perfectly healthy product, we use 100% natural cotton and non-toxic dyes that have received the GOTS label. This label certifies the quality, resistance to use and washing, ethics and eco-responsibility of the materials used.
